As government looks to promote sports, it will continue to lean on one of its most prominent officials.
While much of his speeches last week focused on plans related to sports tourism, Minister of Sports Osbourne Bodden said government continues to have faith in Director of Sports Collin Anglin. The West Bay native is also one of Cayman’s most prominent athletes, having starred for the Dominos Warriors basketball team in division one of the Digicel National Men’s League and engaging in other disciplines like cricket and flag football.
“He and I have built a very good relationship,” Bodden said. “He’s still a young man playing basketball, so he’s very much into sports. He knows what it takes. He’s committed and deeply devoted to his job. I hope we can hold on to him for some time as it’s a pleasure to work side-by-side with him.”
Anglin has been in the post for three years after being in the deputy director role under Dalton Walter for some time.
Watler went on to focus on sports tourism at the Department of Tourism before coming on board as president of the Cayman Islands Athletic Association, the national governing body for track and field.
Anglin, who has degrees in sports management and computer science, has worked for the sports department since 2002.
